19 January 2021 Tempeh Soy

This is the method used to prepare the soy beans. 19 January 2021

Soy tempeh is made from 500 ml of soy beans. Th method is somewhat simplified by boiling the beans for three hours. This softens the husks for removal and cooks the beans. The husks are easily removed by rubbing between the hands and pouring off the husks about five times.The beans are acidified slightly by adding two tablespoons of vinegar to the beans in a colander to insure good drainage. Stir and drain well. Add half a teaspoon of tempeh starter and mix well. I order my starter from Indonesia off the internet, Place the beans in the cotton lined molds. I made the molds using plastic containers with vent holes. Place the molds in a fermenter set at 31C for 40 hours. The result is perfect tempeh. Pictures depict the process.Perfect tempeh.

Three types are made, soy, chickpea and lentil, and about 80 grams are consumed for breakfast. Tempeh is my main source of protean.

Drying marijuana plants

I use a plastic box about 13 x 7 x 4 inches from Home Depot and The plant is trimmed placed in the box to dry for about 5 days agitated periodically for even drying. At the end of five days the knobs are pulled off the stem an slightly trimmed and allowed to dry for a further 5 days.

The relatively dry material; is placed in a liter jar about 60 grams per jar and pressure cooked for 2 hours at 15 PSI. This is 240 F for 2 hours which effectively decarboxylates marijuana.

I make olive oil and/or heavy cream infusion and ingest a small amount a teaspoon for effect. I do not smoke.

When end of growth arrives it is time to harvest and trim. It is a bit tedious so do it in stages. Good pair of dollar store scissors are the tool. Simply remove all the long leaves from th clump chosen. I view mine under a LED digital viewer. I decarboxylatee in usually 2 ounce projects and only ingest, I do not smoke or vape. The Internet videos are usually poor. Still pictures are usually more informative.
